How To Train Your Baby How To Sleep

Your baby can be help to sleep by Pavlov’s dogs. Pavlov’s dogs provided a way for babies to sleep. If you have heard of Ivan Pavlov and his dogs experiment then you know and appreciate the conditioning benefits. The dog’s were taught that when the bell rang it was a cue to eat. The dogs overtime got used to timetable and associated a bell ring with food. Easy, right? Each time the bell rang the dogs would go to the place they were served with food as they knew it was eating time. However, the issue here isn’t dogs it is the baby’s sleep pattern.

The perception is similar it is only that we know that here it is the baby but thet training condition is similar. Keenly follow the baby’s routine and look out for sleeping cues.

The sleeping cues are helpful to your baby as you will know the sleeping time and the behavior that should tell your it is time to sleep.

This is a good concept I’m sure. It is however not easy as written. Some elements need to taken into account for this concept to work.

First you must have a schedule for the baby everyday. The reason behind this is that a schedule leads to consistency which to predictability. These steps if followed daily every night the baby will predict and know what comes after the current activity and detect the cue that is supposed to be for sleeping.

There are times when you feel you would like you should help the baby settle and other times you feel like letting her sleep on her own.

During the times when you decide that you want to put the baby to sleep make sure you do it consistently and gently.

Swaying rhythms helps a baby to go to sleep. In case you need to use swaying to help the baby go to sleep it should be done gently because if it is fast the baby will get a signal that it is expected to play.

The next schedule that should be implement is the parents. One good cue is time for taking a bath. The child will know that soon after bathing , there will be a few other activities all centered around sleep and so at the time you will say it is bed time everybody should just go to bed.

To conclude, babies start their lives in the womb, and they more accustomed to it. It is unlikely to come into the world with a lot of vigor as it can cause an insecurity feeling by the baby. For a baby to sleep properly the transition from the womb to the world should be gentle and smooth.
